Washer/dryers are usually included, as are secured entries.  High speed internet access is available. These properties may be found in central business districts or suburban locations.

2 StarNomad Two Star Rating

These properties, often built in the 1970’s or 1980’s, have benefitted from some form of renovation. They are often garden style, central corridor properties in large cities such as Los Angeles or the Washington, DC area. They include medium to lower grade apartment furniture and basic housewares and linens. This style of property can be suitable for intern groups, theater groups and government agencies with a limited budget.  These properties are by request only for special needs as they typically do not meet Nomad’s standards for service and quality. No 2 star accommodations are listed on

1 StarNomad One Star Rating

Often found in large well established areas of historic cities such as London and New York, these properties are built within the last 70 - 100 years, with various forms of renovation. Many guests view these locations as quaint. Furnishings and housewares are limited, however the basics are included, from utilities to cable TV. Nomad will not list these properties on as they are unable to meet our service and quality standards.
